Problems with the RETURN statement.
The RETURN statement does not always skip all the remaining parts of a command file.
Workaround: instead of using RETURN, out-comment the remainder of the file with '/*' followed by '*/'.
The STOP and EXIT commands work as intended.
VAL v1 = 1;
DATE d1 = 1990;
Conversion between memory variables will be tested and documented more thoroughly in the 1.7.x series. The conversion between memory variable types is relatively new, so please use with some care.
adding a DATE and a VAL together seems to work fine (will result in a
DATE, offset by the VAL). Adding VAL and VAL or STRING and STRING has
no problems either.
Convergence of forward-looking models
It seems problematic to use the
same criteria for Fair-Taylor convergence as for Gauss convergence. The
best seems to be to use stricter criteria for Gauss convergence than
for Fair-Taylor convergence, otherwise the Fair-Taylor loop may keep
iterating needlessly. This problem will be investigated further.
